Telecommuting Related to COVID-19 Policy

As Phase 1 begins, it is understood that some employees may be unable to return due to personal or family health, child care needs, or due to physical distancing needs at the worksite. The Telecommuting Policy related to COVID-19 was established to provide the expectations and approval process for staff who need to work remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is a temporary policy developed under the Staff Policy Manual to address employee needs due to COVID-19.

Face Covering Guidelines for Supervisors

Legal has developed guidelines for supervisors responding to staff or visitors to refuse to wear face coverings. These guidelines serve to reinforce the standards put in place to support the health and safety of all individuals. The guidelines also outline steps to take if an employee is requesting an accommodation.
